Julia David Levithan Quotes

"Think about it. People in the sixteenth century - not to mention in Jesuss time - didnt look like this: perfect skin, perfect hairdos, spotless clothes. These are people who went to the bathroom in the street, for Gods sake. Theres no way they looked like this. But thats how were going to remember them. Our alabaster past. When nothing else is left, art will become the truth of the time. Then people will get to the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and wonder what happened - how we all became so imperfect."

Jacques Rivette Quotes

"Their films would probably be better if theyd seen a few more films, which runs counter to this idiotic theory that you run the risk of being influenced if you see too much."

Blake Butler Quotes

"I thought of my father, alone and elsewhere, his head cradled in his hands. I thought of the day hed punched a hole straight through the kitchen wall, thinking shed be tucked away inside. All those places hed looked and never found. Inside their mattress. In stained-glass windows. How hed scoured the carpet for her stray hair and strung them all together with a ribbon; how hed slept with that one lock swathed across his nostrils, hugging a pillow fitted with a nightshirt. How hed dug up the backyard, stripped and sweating. How hed played her favorite album on repeat and loud, a lure. How when we took up the carpet in my bedroom to find her, under the carpet was wood. Under the wood there was cracked concrete. Under the concrete there was dirt. Under the dirt there was a cavity of water. I swam down into the water with my nose clenched and lungs burning in my chest but I could not find the bottom and I couldnt see a thing."

Quotes About Life Of A Man

"For as we would wish that a painter who is to draw a beautiful face, in which there is yet some imperfection, should neither wholly leave out, nor yet too pointedly express what is defective, because this would deform it, and that spoil the resemblance; so since it is hard, or indeed perhaps impossible, to show the life of a man wholly free from blemish, in all that is excellent we must follow truth exactly, and give it fully; any lapses or faults that occur, through human passions or political necessities, we may regard rather as the shortcomings of some particular virtue, than as the natural effects of vice; and may be content without introducing them, curiously and officiously, into our narrative, if it be but out of tenderness to the weakness of nature, which has never succeeded in producing any human character so perfect in virtue as to be pure from all admixture and open to no criticism." - Author: Plutarch

Quotes About Hypocritical Politicians

"What a country of lazy shits, with fucking hypocritical politicians claiming that people actually wanted to work if they could. Norwegians voted for the Socialist Party because it made it a human right to shirk their jobs, and who the hell wouldnt vote for a party that gave you three days off without a doctors note, gave you carte blanche to sit at home and jerk off or go skiing or recover from a hangover? The Socialist Party knew, of course, what a perk this was, but still tried to appear responsible, preened themselves with their "trust in most people" and declared the right to malinger as some kind of social reform. The Progress Party was even more fucking infuriating, buying itself votes with tax cuts and hardly bothering to conceal the fact." - Author: Jo Nesbø

Quotes About Cigarette Addiction

"My biggest gripe is still hope. In hell, hope is a really really bad habit. Like smoking cigarettes or fingernail biting. Hope is something really tough and tenacious you have to give up. Its an addiction to break. Yes, I know the word tenacious. Im 13 and disillusioned. And a little lonely." - Author: Chuck Palahniuk

Quotes About Not Always Being Together

"Thats why you look so tired, isnt it?" I murmured. "You used up all your magic to find me last night."Owen shrugged as though it was nothing. But it wasnt nothing to me. Besides Finn and the Deveraux sisters, I couldnt even remember the last time someone had cared enough to come looking for me when I was in trouble. I was so used to being on my own for so long, always being the tough, strong, capable one, that Id forgotten how nice it felt to have someone else look out for me.To have someone else care about me.And just like that, the fragile strings of my feelings for Owen joined together, all the tangled threads wrapping around and weaving their way through my heart. Scary and painful in some ways, but necessary in others too." - Author: Jennifer Estep

Quotes About Nothing Happens By Chance

"So began their love, the boy happy and amazed, she happy and not surprised at all (nothing happens by chance to girls). It was the love so long awaited by Cosimo and which had now inexplicably arrived, and so lovely that he could not imagine how he had even thought it lovely before. And the thing newest to him was that it was so simple, and the boy at that moment thought it must be like that always." - Author: Italo Calvino

Quotes About Change And Moving On In Relationships

"While the primary function of formal Buddhist meditation is to create the possibility of the experience of "being," my work as a therapist has shown me that the demands of intimate life can be just as useful as meditation in moving people toward this capacity. Just as in formal meditation, intimate relationships teach us that the more we relate to each other as objects, the greater our disappointment. The trick, as in meditation, is to use this disappointment to change the way we relate." - Author: Mark Epstein

Quotes About Detached

"Martin said, "It feels as though part of my self has detached and gone to Amsterdam, where it—she—is waiting for me. Do you know about phantom-limb syndrome?" Julia nodded.

Do you see?" - Author: Audrey Niffenegger
